    I have done a lot of driver installs and system checking to determine the root cause of this issue that started after Installed windows 8 on my Dell Inspirion N5050 laptop. But I recently found the solution to the problem is a power saving feature in windows 8+ that causes the USB to sleep after a period of inactivity. How much power does it save to turn off the USB? Ok, so if you are like me and have tried everything suggested under the sun, try this:

    Step 1: Open Control Panel
    Step 2: Click on System and Security
    Step 3: Click on Change when the computer sleeps
    Step 4: Click on Change advanced power settings
    Step 5: Scroll down the list to the USB Settings node and expand it by clicking the + sign on the left.
    Step 6: Expand the USB selective suspend setting node by clicking on the + sign to the left.
    Step 7: Click on “On battery:” to activate the selection drop down and select “Disabled”.
    Step 8: Click on “Plugged in:” to activate the selection drop down and select “Disabled”.
    Step 9: Click OK to exit back to the Edit Plan Settings
    Step 10: Click Save changes.
    Step 11: Click the “X” in the upper right corner of the Edit Plan Setting dialogue to close Control Panel

    THE END!
